FOLLOWING THE horrific scenes of police violence in Armthorpe (see issues 713 and 714) the LPYS organised a protest meeting. After leafletting the entire village, a hundred people turned up to hear Nick Toms of YTURC, and Guy Bennet of Armthorpe LPYS and Markham Main NUM.

The meeting agreed to hold a demonstration the following Tuesday. Again the village was leafleted and on the Tuesday a thousand people joined the march, led by local MP Harold Walker, Yorkshire NUM vice-president Sammy Thompson and county councillor Bert Whittle.
